"Historical sketches of the three counties. Plans and maps of towns, villages, and precincts with lists of farmers and business directories" [Coleman]. Boone County, named for Daniel Boone, is across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. It was formed from adjacent Campbell County in 1798. Kenton County was also formerly in Campbell County. Best-known towns are Newport-- once known as 'Sin City' for its illegal production of alcohol and home of a thriving organized crime industry-- and Covington. Le Gear's copy lacked pages 17-20, which are present in our offering.
